Wow I can’t believe it’s already NYE!
For the most part 2015 has been great. It has been crazy busy trying to juggle teaching students at two colleges, while running two companies, and managing a household with a busy husband and a very active chocolate lab Bishop Milo Bryant.
December Challenges and Blessings
December has been VERY rough emotionally, physically, and spiritually. I’ve had medical issues, decided to change my plans and spend time in a Newport Beach hospital instead of hanging at the beach (*can you hear the sarcasm?*) and NOW this week I have strept throat.
What??? As much as I talk…I’m the last person who needs to be shut down with strept throat! 😷
BUT even with all of that, I’m BLESSED and that’s ALL that matters. Not everyone woke up this morning, but you and I did. So praise God for another day!
And STILL I RISE!
My sister Alexandra Foreman (as usual) has stepped up BIG time and she’s been taking care of me these past four weeks. I don’t know what I would do without her.
It was doubly helpful when my mom Gwen Foreman came here for Christmas and just filled our days and my home with love and joy. My mom and sister, and my sister’s boyfriend Shawn helped me cook Christmas dinner. It turned out so awesome!!!! 😋
I’m such a busy body and don’t like being cooped up in the house, so it feels good knowing that my sister is helping pick up my household load, and when she’s not at work she drives me around (or rides with me when I stubbornly demand to drive) to run errands, etc. She’s such a blessing. 🙏🏽
I love my sister, flaws and all. I’m so grateful.
I’m grateful that my husband picked up my meds the other day to fight this strept throat, and has been helping as my “room service attendant” the past few days. It has helped take some of the load off of me and my sister.
My amazing dog Bishop rarely leaves my side. Where mommy is he wants to be, especially when mommy isn’t feeling good. He’s taking a nap next to me as I type this. There’s no loyalty and love like that of a dog!
Move Those Hips: Couch Potato I am NOT!
I can’t wait until I get the okay from doctors to get my Fitbit back on my wrist so I can actively rejoin the daily and weekly challenges with my cousins Vilynsia Collins Montgomery and Kasi Lee-Aska, and my friend Paul Jones.
I know that they’ve been tearing up those challenges. I refuse to open my app because I feel so left out! It’s been four long weeks of inactivity. 😩
2015 is Wrapping up and Here’s What I See in my New Year:
I look forward to what 2016 will bring. I look forward to the opportunities and challenges. I look forward to the growth and the growing pains. I look forward to making my mark, doing big things, going new places, meeting new faces, and conquering my fears.
I look forward to watching Foreman & Associates, LLC and Storiboard Nation LLC grow and get closer to reaching our missions. Both companies have some big announcements and overhauls coming in January. I look forward to seeing where my Storiboard Nation business partner, Markeith Wood, and I take our company. Iron sharpens iron. So watch out for us in 2016!!!!
The Servant Leader’s Call to Serve
I’m excited about a HUGE announcement that I have about my Breaking Bread With Natasha blog. I’ve painfully been inactive for several weeks. I know that people have been freaking out. But I promise to make it up to all of my readers. Stay tuned for details.
So What Does All of This Mean?
NOTHING and NO ONE will stop me from being who and what God intends for me. Like it, love it, or leave it—just don’t think for one minute that you can stop what God has set in motion for me! God did not make me to be mediocre. God did not see “small” in His vision for me. The visions that He has given me are in no way small.
I only want people around me who will be truly supportive of me (in thought, word, and deed) as I climb these behemoths and reach the top. Don’t small change me. Don’t reduce me to your comfort level. Help me or get out of my way. You can trash talk about me, while miles behind me!
I’m blessed and highly favored. Thank you 2015 for the lessons. I’m ready to put things in motion for 2016.
Let’s do this!!!!!!
Warmest wishes and love,
Natasha Foreman Bryant
